The clock is running down on Arsene Wenger’s career at Arsenal if reports from London Evening Standard are to be believed.

The paper claims the north London club have lined up the Italian mastermind Carlo Ancelotti as Wenger’s replacement.

Frenchman’s position at the club will be reviewed in May despite the fact Wenger penned a new two-year deal just last summer. Wenger arrived in London back in October 1996 and went on to become the longest-serving manager in English top flight, surpassing Si Alex Ferguson’s record of most games in charge of a top-flight side.

The Italian media report that Carlo Ancelotti is looking towards Arsenal following his most recent Bayern Munich dismissal.

Trophy-laden tactician was sacked by Bundesliga champions after a series of poor results at Bayern Munich with the tipping point coming at the 3-0 defeat to Paris Saint-Germain in the Champions League group stage last week.

Bayern Munich decided to part ways with Ancelotti despite the Italian leading the Bavarians to the Bundesliga title last year. A string of below-par performances and a reported disagreement with some of the players at the club led to his sacking.

According to ESPN, Bayern Munich manager Carlo Ancelotti could return to England in search for a new challenge if he exits the Allianz Arena this season, and the Arsenal job is believed to be one he could end up pursuing.

Arsene Wenger has stated the new season under pressure among Arsenal supporters following their poor start in the Premier League, and defeat to Chelsea on Sunday could almost make his position untenable.

Bayern Munich manager Carlo Ancelotti admitted the perennial Bundesliga champions are interested in Arsenal forward Alexis Sanchez, but admitted the Germans won’t over-pay for the Chilean who is out of contract the following summer. Sanchez is 7/1 to join Bayern this summer but the asking price and reported wage demands could be a stumbling block.

“If an opportunity comes up, the club will be ready. There are lots of rumours. Alexis is a great player but not the only one in the world. I like Alexis. There are possibilities in the transfer market, which can be in many directions,” said Ancelotti, reports the Mirror.

Arsenal and Bayern Munich clash on Tuesday night in the Champions League last-16 second leg, as the home side look to recover some pride from the clash.

The Gunners suffered a 5-1 mauling in the first leg at the Allianz Arena in the first leg. The defeat was a shock to the Gunners system and made the second leg almost academic. The Gunners would need to defeat Bayern 4-0 or 6-1 to progress into the quarter-finals.

An Arsenal victory seems like an unlikely result, as the Gunners have won just three of their last 11 meetings against Bayern Munich in the Champions League. Two of those three wins have come on home soil.

La Liga runners-up Real Madrid are set to step up their interest to sign Arsenal transfer target Luis Suarez.

Following the departure of striker Gonzalo Higuain to Serie A side Napoli, the Spanish outfit have been in the market for his replacement and regard Liverpool’s top goalscorer as the perfect choice.
